Primary fabric: Use lightweight to medium weight knit fabric with 50% – 60% stretch and very good recovery. Rayon spandex (with 6% or more spandex content) and double-brushed poly are good choices.

A note from the designer about bust cup options: To determine your cup size, subtract the circumference of your over bust from the circumference of the fullest part of your bust. If the rounded difference is 1″ (2.5 cm), use A cup; 2″ (5 cm), use B cup; 3″ (7.5 cm), use C cup; 4″ (10 cm), use D cup; 5″ (12.5 cm), use DD cup.
Notions: 40″ (102 cm) of 3/8″ or 1/2″ (1 cm or 1.25 cm)-wide straight fusible stay tape (or you may cut your own using lightweight woven fusible interfacing on the straight grain) // Optional: 1/4″ or 3/8″ (6 mm or 1 cm) clear elastic as long as your waist.
